Offbeat: Giant Barn Swing

BRANSON, MO(KAIT)-- If you like thrills, then you've got to make a trip to Silver Dollar City in Branson.  Over the last few years, the park has added a number of new heart pounding rides, including a big addition: The Giant Barn Swing.

Join thirty-one other courageous souls as you're seated back-to-back on two giant pendulum arms.  Then hold on tight as you launch through the barn doors at 45 mph, bursting over 7 stories into the sky and nearly upside down! You'll fly a full 230 degrees from one side of the barn to the other!

It's not a ride for the faint of heart, it's a thrill no like other in the park as you stare straight into the sky and then seconds later, straight down into the Lost River.

True to the Silver Dollar City theme, The Giant Barn Swing encompasses the charm of an 1880's Ozarks mining town, including a 20 foot tall copper rooster weather vane perched on top.

For more information on The Giant Barn Swing, other attractions, and a park operating schedule just go to www.silverdollarcity.com.
